"My Way" on the St. Lawrence River

CLAYTON, New York (August 4, 2014) – The Antique Boat Museum (ABM), North America’s premier freshwater nautical museum based in Clayton, New York, announced today that My Way, a 50-foot Mystic catamaran with twin Lycoming T-55 turbine engines, will make an appearance on the ABM docks this Thursday, August 7.

[ Update 8/6/14....

It’s just not going “MY WAY”. The Antique Boat Museum has learned that due to some complications with the boat, My Way will not appear on Thursday, August 7 as originally scheduled. Owner Bill Tomlinson informed the museum earlier this afternoon and shared his regrets. ]

Owned by Bill Tomlinson of Ottawa, Canada, My Way currently holds the world record as the fastest propeller powered boat after clocking a pass at 224 mph in August 2013 at Lake of the Ozarks.

My Way’s visit to the ABM is part of the upcoming Raceboat Regatta festivities, which officially kick-off on Friday, August 8 at 8 a.m.

The ABM is home to North America’s largest antique boat collection with more than 300 boats and over 1,000 boating artifacts. In addition, the Museum is known as the birthplace of the antique raceboat regatta, which will run August 8-10. For more information, please visit the Museum’s website at
